In other news, Beyonce gets tipsy off love in the sexy ‘Drunk in Love’ is just one of the 17 tracks that appear on the diva’s surprise album. Beyonce’s released her self-titled fifth solo album via iTunes on Friday without warning.
With no lead-in single or heavy promotion, fans were (pleasantly) shocked by the release. Although observant fans knew something was up—news about music video shoots had occasionally cropped up on celebrity gossip websites—but they didn’t know what she was working on or when it would come out. Of course the cat is out of the bag now and Bey’s new album is retailing for about $15.99. Eventually fans can stream the album for free on Spotify and Rdio, but for the time being, if you want to hear Beyoncé’s new music you have to pay.
Speaking of which, more than 80,000 people bought the album within three hours of its release, temporarily overloading iTunes, and 430,000 albums were sold before the day was over. Find out what 'powers that be' predict Bey will sell before it's all said and done. All the details are below inside Tha Wire.
